There are three easy steps:
- Create a Daybreak account
- Wait until they offer a free character boost
For the last few years I think I have only leveled up in EQII when Daybreak offers yet another free character boost, like the one that they just made available:
The information is also in the release notes for this week’s update:
LEVEL 100 BOOST PROMOTIONAL GRANT
All accounts created before April 20th 2017 will be granted a level 100 boost item that will increase a single characters level to 100 and grant a set of equipment appropriate to playing within the Proving Grounds, or beginning their adventure in Kunark Ascending zones.
Accounts created after April 20th may obtain the level 100 boost item by subscribing. Only a single boost will be granted per account.
So you can see why I suggest you make an account in advance.
My account was created on November 12, 2004, so I think I am safe. With this I think I will have a level 85, a level 95, and two level 100 characters and I think I only ever played any of them up to level 70 back in the day. I think this time around I decided to level up Reynaldo on the Halls of Fate server. He’s been hanging around in the Revelry & Honor guild since 2008 at about level 50.
To get the level boost you have to use the /claim command to bring up the claim window. The boost bauble is in the Promotions section.
When you activate it, hey presto, you are level 100. You also get a package of gear.
I could not open up the packet of level 100 equipment because Reynaldo’s bags were full of junk, because of course they were. But I think I will leave his cosmetic gear set to the rusty armor he has been sitting in for most of the last decade.
Maybe some day I will get around to playing him again. However, my luck with Daybreak level boosts has not been so good. I boost up and then tend to find myself lost in uncharted territory. Ah well.
But if you do boost yourself up, you will find that they are also running a double currency event in the game as well, because who cares about inflation!
